Went on Easter Sunday. New to Georgia, so this was our first time here. We had reservations and were seated in the bar. Bartender/server was AWESOME (don't remember her name unfortunately). Not too crowded, so pretty quiet.

The food was outstanding from the appetizers to the desserts. Best spinach and artichoke dip we've ever had and the lemon cake was really good.

Will definitely return to work our way through the menu!

Atmosphere and area good and clean. Wait staff distracted seemingly because of noise levels and waiting too many tables.

Delicious flatbread but at 31 inches too big for one person. We ordered one each? Would have appreciated knowing that as we ordered so that we could have not ordered so much

Always our fist stop on our annual trip to Hilton Head. Love the ambiance, the food, and can’t say enough about our server, Lisa. She was so much fun and really made the evening even better!

We always make a point of staying in Savannah on ou trips south, and winding down from a long day of driving at Sam Sneads. This is a classic steakhouse tavern with great menu, service, and atmosphere.

With our reservation we were sat right away. The waitress wanted to know instantly what our drink orders were. When I asked for a moment she would not come back until our third person arrived. (She was about ten minutes after we sat.) when our food arrived some of us were made to grab our plates from the waitress instead of placing the dishes down. I asked for butter and sour cream on my baked potato. There was very little of it on it. It took a moment to realize there was no salt or pepper on the table. Our waitress became invisible. I had to get another server to assist. She was barely visible throughout the dinner. And only at the last asked if I wanted another wine and never offered or just provided more water. Food was okay not great. It did not match the prices charged.

Walking into Sam Sneads you cordially welcomed and escorted to your table. While on the way you are absorbed into a warm and pleasing climate. Our entire time in Sam Sneads was fantastic.

The restaurant was cold as the wait staff kept going outside and bringing dirty dishes back in. We waited some time before a waitress arrived. Another group of people who were seated after us, were waited on first. Could it be that they knew a worker??? On the plus side, the food was quite good.

I was excited to try this place out. We just moved here and it seems to be the only high end place in Pooler to dine. We enjoy a nice dinner 1-3 times a month. I was a little disappointed in the menu though, I felt that I was at a chain restaurant. They had a flatbread and burger section, when I was expecting an entree and course secretion. The ambiance was nice but I felt that it was a dressed up version of Longhorn steakhouse. The music they were playing ranged from country classics to Bruno Mars (it was not enjoyable). I ordered the mahi mahi and the the cut of fish was AMAZING (supple, hearty, good portion) but I ordered it blackened and I could barely eat it. I had to scrape off the blacked seasoning because it was SOOO salty. Overall, I was not unhappy but I probably won’t be returning.

Bread should be a 'given.' Not a request. My surf and turf, one of the most expensive dishes on the menu, was served with a huge mound of cold mashed potatoes. Others in our party had to keep requesting extra sauce; why aren't dishes that come with/in a sauce, automatically served with additional on the side? Even in the age of Covid, salt and pepper should not be offered in paper packets. On someone's birthday, something, even a cup of coffee, should be offered free of charge.
